The point here is that she is fine at night but wets herself slightly during the day.This may be due to her trying to hold her urine in while at school. She may not want to use the school toilet or there may be some other reason for her doing this. Talk to her and see if you can find the reason and encourage her to pass urine when she feels the need to do so and not try to keep it in.
